* Fred L. Drake, Jr.
| The "object" I imagine has three attributes: namespace URI,
| localpart, and prefix.  It would unpack to two values: URI &
| localpart, and comparisons would only operate on those two as well.

This is how I envision it too. (Except that Java SAX now uses the
rawname instead of the prefix, and so we probably should too.)

| The advantage is that we get the prefix for those who want it,
| single object comparisons, and no extraneous parameters to the call.
| I don't think *this* is available using the non-object approaches.

It isn't, and so objects also seem like a good alternative to me.
